Desolate heart trying to find consolation
That there could my eyes
Suffering from some disease
Could not spot your sight!
Faint eyes trying for your sight
Shed tears to bring some clarity!
There is some trouble with my eyes
For you won’t leave me
In this desolate plight!
So loving was your disposition
So assuring were your words
Hardly can I believe
You are away from me!
You must be somewhere near
Problem is my eyes!
